The kids lining up for these are not wealthy. These are mostly children of single mothers that are barely scraping by. Trust, I resold about 30 pairs of the Gamma's, 60 pairs of the Breds, 20 pairs of the Concords and I am currently unloading the remainder of my 1's. None went to a child of wealth. Every big release my phone blows up from single moms trying to score their kid a pair.

I'm assuming you're hitting up the Woodburn location because MLK never has stuff like that.

I don't understand the hate for resellers. I'm talking about guys like thenewj's that are real resellers. That said, guys that camp or wait in line to buy 1 pair to flip piss me off to end.

On another note whats up with the Flyknit Trainers? Are they done or what?

post #5110 of 7581

Yeh I've gotten a few nice pick ups at the outlets lately.

 

I got the same destroyer jacket ($99), the Millerain x Nike destroyer ($89) a pair of the newsprint inneva's ($69) and the black mayfly wovens (forget the price but they were pretty close to retail, maybe $69-79) and the following week NDC restocked them). I also saw the same Millerain destroyer at the local TJ Maxx last week too for the same price.

And I was at Dick's today and they had a bunch of the tech pack (no pants or crews, but all of the rest in grey, charcoal and black and the full run of the womens tech pack - wife got the cape.)

Dang, bro...I'm surprised you're still flipping kicks, not to say anything is wrong with that. I thought you'd be on that million dollar hustle now since your pops is connected and you're beyond your 20s.


You can't really blame him. It's a buyers market. If they don't buy from him, they'll get it from somewhere else.

There's no profession more honorable for a grown man than reselling made in china sneakers to desperate children.

I dont consider myself a reseller. I never set out to do it, it just happened. Being prior Navy I am used to all my worldly possessions fitting inside of a coffin, I dont like to keep much stuff. So I tend to sell off un-used stuff through-out the year. So I am known locally to have stuff for sale. I'll go through a Jordan binge and then I realize I have too many and the selling begins.

 

One year I accidentally bought way too many pairs of the Space Jams. I thought they would get cancelled but they all shipped by the case. I struck out bad on the 11/12 pack the year before so I went through and asked all my military friends stationed all over the world if they could get a pair if their base got them. Most of them if not all came through, I wanted atleast two pair. So it was a mad dash to unload the stuff. It was well into June before I got rid of them. By then peeps were already telling me they would give me X amount of money for the Cool Greys the following December. The closer it got the more calls I got and it got crazy for those that struck out. I used the same technique I had used for the Space Jams and it worked and has since then with some added stuff. 

 

I only buy what people have agreed to get from me. Flakers are at the minimal cause they know I will drop them the next go around. Plus Houston "LOVES" XI's so I knew they would sit long if I did have a flaker. As you know, I got other stuff brewing. 

 

I was a full-time student back then and had started a pressure washing business to live on. This came along and it allowed me get out the sun and make what I had made with my business in one month and turn over the business to a nephew in high school. 

 

Economy made turn for the better and has blessed my dad with amazing opportunities, but I never forgot that small hustle that allowed me to concentrate on school.
